Managing loan documents across the range of parties involved in origination, warehousing and securitisation over the life of the loan can be challenging. As a result, both buy-side and sell-side communities dealing in loans need a trusted third-party custodian like Deutsche Bank that can independently review, report and safeguard their physical and electronic loan documents

Your trusted partner

Cost management has become more important than ever, and organisations are increasingly required to focus resources that centre on their core business. For this reason, it is important for them to select a provider that can maximise efficiencies around document administration and invest in next-generation technology to improve processes and align with marketplace developments.
